Slow service and just ok food
It was just ok. We’ve been to other Roy’s restaurants and this particular location was not as impressive. For the price I feel the service and ambience should have been better.
Great scenery overlooking the water and marina. Cocktails were fabulous as was the food. Menu had a lot of great seafood choices as well as meats. Wait staff was very accompaniment and helpful. Love this place and recommend for work, personal or special occasions. Can't wait to go back!
Very good meal! We asked to be seated outside on a last minute reservation and they accommodated us. Good was fabulous and service was very goo!
Everything was perfect
Nice restaurant, got nosier later in the evening
As usual the food & service was incredible. A great place to celebrate that special occasion.
Visiting San Diego so we had to stop at Roy’s! We love all their food, but my favorite is the trio of fish - I get it every time so I never had to decide between the three - they’re all so good! My friend got two different rolls of sushi. She’s gluten free, and they were kind enough to accommodate her allergy so she could try a new roll that’s normal deep fried - they just left that step out. And of course we got the chocolate soufflé - always so delicious!
Just waiting for Roy’s to open up a location where I live in DC!
Unfortunately not a great experience. Difficult access through busy hotel lobby. When you finally get there (10 minute walk) you enter through chair storage area and come in through back of bar. Service was slow. Cocktails did not come until appetizers came out. Wine came out half way through main course. Food was barely warm and mediocre. Hotel valet is $12 with validation. Won't be back.
The food was excellent as was the service. They could use some updating on the chairs. Some were pretty worn out on the seats.
The service was lousy, the food was bad
Amazing! Our waiter Bernard was absolutely outstanding. Exceptional young man.
HOSTESS WAS RIGHT ON WITH OUR FLOWER DELIVERY AND OUR TABLE WAS THE BEST IN THE HOUSE FOR OUR BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION.
WE HAD THE 4 FISH PLATTER WITH WINE AND COCKTAILS...SERVICE COULD NOT HAVE BEEN BETTER..
We’ve always enjoyed Roy’s, and this visit didn’t disappoint. Glad we saved room for the chocolate soufflé!
Roy’s food has gone down hill. Quality of ingredients was low quality and the preparation was also bad. The restaurant was empty, probably a sign others have figured out the restaurant is not great.
The food and service was amazing. We were late because of unusually bad traffic and we called agead because we had a show to get to after. They had our food on thee table right away and saved our evening plans. Love Roy’s both San Diego and Hawaii.
What a great meal we had here. The view of the port was nice but the food was/is the reason to come here. The appetizers were amazing as were the main courses. Freshest of fish & the service was very good also. They have a nice wine list.
Window seat, dock view. Extremely spicy Bloody Mary. I asked for more tomato juice, and was brought a glass of their mix, I think. It was better, but the whole glass of mix made the drink almost drinkable. Good food, but I had expected to eat fish, and wound up with a pork sandwich. The fish entree was $41 for Butterfish (Alaskan Cod), which I have had at Roy's in Palm Springs. The restaurant is spectacular, but may have raised the prices beyond reasonable.
And it is difficult to get to. And expensive to park in the Marriott's lots. We were told by the valet that there was no parking available near the restaurant, so we chose the valet at $17. Plus tip. For lunch! There was plenty of handicapped parking when we got to Roy's, and that's what I needed.
I had Roy's Trio and my wife had the scallops with lump crab fried rice. The Trio offerings were just above average as were the scallops. The rice was below average.
My wife and I had a wonderful experience at the bar with a friend and his wife. Great food, drinks and the bartender was friendly and enjoyable. We own a similar restaurant in Napa named Eiko's Modern Japanese.It was modeled after Roy's.
Roy's was the best meal we had all week while in San Diego.
Roy J. and staff
The service at Roy's was excellent and the food was delicious. I had the steak with sauted mushrooms along with a side of the lobster mac and cheese. My steak was cooked to perfection and the macaroni was creamy. The only problem was finding designated parking and signage for the restaurant separate from the hotel at this location in San Diego on Harbor.
Meals we ordered were great! It's a nice place to dine. Roy's is one of my favorite restaurants.
Evan & Michela were both outstanding staff members. My partner & I are always open to trying new foods, and are trying to expand our palettes and explore and dive into more fine dining. So, Roy's was a great start to our new adventure. And really appreciate the amazing hospitality.
The food would have been good had each dish not been cold. It must have sat in the kitchen for a long long time before being brought to the table.
A fabulous restaurant which never disappoints. It's my favorite restaurant!
Excellent food and service.
We took my mother here to celebrate her 60th birthday and it was a wonderful experience. They gave us a great table upstairs right by the window and brought a chocolate souffle with a candle on it when it was dessert time. My mother's birthday was on valentine's day so we had the prix fixe menu which made the experience even more special.
Went on Valentines Day and unfortunately they had a “special “ menu. This basically allows them to overcharge and trim down the quality. Spicy tuna roll had no spice and virtually no tuna. Desserts were awful. Salad course so bland. Went to Roy’s in Hawaii and it was so memorable and delicious. Not so much at this location. Very disappointed
Great experience at Roy's for Valentine's Day. Quick service: They were always on top of things and constantly filling water and always there when another drink needed to be ordered. The food was great and on time with every course. Very friendly servers as well. I would definitely go back again and look forward to it.
Enjoyed the evening, service and ambience. All the staff seemed to take a personal interest in our enjoying the evening.
Thank you for a truly great evening

Roy’s is s great place to go for a special dinner. Food is always prepared to perfection. They are the master of sauces and dressing here. Great seafood and steaks. The keiffir lime tart for dessert is like having fireworks in your mouth.
Appetizers were great and service was great. You could get a better streak at the Sizzler. The meat was terrible, full of gristle and fat. No flavor and smothered in sauce.
Huge, upscale chain restaurant in huge hotel next to Convention Center. Unless you are part of a big group, there is no reason to go to this restaurant. Hostess desk was disinterested and acted as though they were doing you a favor by listening to your request, let alone sitting you. We actually did not eat at the restaurant, mainly because of the vast size of the restaurant in a massive hotel, and the snotty hostess.
The waiter, servers and bartenders were lovely, attentive and friendly! The outdoor patio has a cozy ambience with fire pits and heaters and a beautiful view. I honestly didn’t love the food, however. The sushi roll was too spicy and a little fishy. The trio was disappointing—over-sauced fish with a tiny bit of vegetable. But, I’ve heard these are Roy’s customer favorites so I suppose it’s just my personal preference.
Dined outside. Lovely location. Patio heaters kept us very comfy. Service was wonderful. Have dined at several Roy’s locations... this one is our favourite. You must try the chocolate soufflé.
Service was excellent and friendly. Table and view were ok. Food was good. Wine was good but a bit expensive for the bottle at quite a high markup.
We have been to 2 Roys restaurants in Hawaii and always loved them! San Diego did not disappoint!! The grilled Caesar salad, Ahi and mahi mahi were all done to perfection! HIGHLY recommend the pineapple upside down cake dessert!!! It takes time to make so you have to order it earlier.... well worth it!! Perfect to split—- made it “just right”. Excellent service!
